Bubble-blanket-quilt

Puff blanket, bubble quilt, biscuit quilt; it is adorable no matter what you call it. This is the first time I have seen anything like this and I am smitten. (Especially with the rainbow one!)These unique blankets are the perfect play mat for the little babe, snuggling on the couch, or even as a bedspread. Awaiting Ava is a pro at making these and has a wonderful tutorial so we can learn to make our own!

Here’s the link to the tutorial…

Eco Admirer has rounded up 33 terrific projects that I am so excited to feature (and I can’t wait to try)!
